  • Babylon's burning
    You're burning the street
    You're burning your houses
    With anxiety

    With anxiety
    Babylon's burning
    Babylon's burning with anxiety
    Babylon's burning
    Babylon's burning

    Babylon's burning
    You're burning the street
    You're burning the ghetto
    With anxiety

    With anxiety
    Babylon's burning
    Babylon's burning with anxiety
    Babylon's burning
    Babylon's burning

    Babylon's burning, baby can't you see?
    Babylon is burning with anxiety

    You'll burn at your work
    You'll burn at your play
    It's positively smoldering
    With ignorance and hate

    And with anxiety
    Babylon's burning
    Babylon's burning with anxiety
    Babylon's burning
    Babylon's burning

    Babylon's burning, baby
    Can't you see?
    Babylon is burning with anxiety

    Babylon's burning, babylon's burning
    Babylon is burning
    Babylon's burning, babylon's burning
